The old 'spend the night in a haunted house' plot is such a well worn cliche it takes a lot of skill to make it interesting. The writing in this one was pretty decent overall, but there were a few typos, and more could've been done in the beginning to catch the reader's attention or make them care about these kids in the first place.

There were a couple of genuinely creepy moments, but the haunted house itself (or maybe it's just the paths I took) didn't quite live up to its reputation. Both times the kids encountered something with the potential to be dangerous they simply ran away and the game ended with them safely outside. Also, I gathered the house was actually being lived in and we stole someone's priceless baseball card, but there was no follow up to that other that 'woo, we're rich now!'

There was a nice use of pictures throughout, though some seemed out of place. I would've stuck with one style, such as the real photos.

All the items had logical uses, though I'm not sure what the pebbles were supposed to do...they were usable, but didn't exactly help much in the basement. (Though admittedly it was kind of a subversion of expectations when they at first SEEMED to, and it led to one of the creepier moments...)

Overall I enjoyed this, and I hope you keep writing.

You got a meh on the nomnom scale! I liked how you needed to use the items, but why was the house brand new? I felt like you were just breaking in someone's house during their vacation. What were those rocks for? Is it just me or does Jonas seem strange possibly evil? Anyways good job!

It's a good game if you know how to play your cards right.
